, flexible regulation the united states had the best economy in the world. only in the last 20, since we decided that government was always the problem, have we done. i think the search for thoughtful, reasonable regulation is exactly what we need. spl of that regulation may only be registration. i think a fair amount of it might be so that we will know where the pools of money are that are investing in our country and commage the way we were. i think it is reasonable, i think it is thoughtful, and i think it is easy to find. >> mr. pagliuca. >> i think what happened was a direct result of us not having appropriate regulation and enforcement. the crisis was caused by banks that decided they would take short-term risks to make long-term profits, and not long-term profits. we got over-extended. swayings like i.a.g. put this whole country at risk. so i come out with a plan. you can go to my web site and see this plan. it calls for a strong central regulator. it is not unlike what we did after 9-11 to coordinate various bodies. second, it must be national. if we have laxed regulations in one

as a citizen of the united states is just appalling. i think eric holder should have left them in guantanamo bay and be tried there. i lived in new york in 2000 and 2001. it was just terrible. for them to be tried in a federal court, it just speaks to this country to give people that do not ware uniforms, do not apply to the geneva convention to come to our country and then be given rights like a citizen. host: david, in this newspaper article, attorney general holder elected to proceed with the first u.s. criminal prosecution alleged to have been directly involved in the plot eight years ago that targeted the world trade center and pent he gone because of his full confidence in the successful outcome. tell us why you are not as convinced of the outcome? caller: i'm not confident because i believe that in our country, people are innocent until proven guilty. when you use water boarding and all these things they are trying to use against ournqq governmen why should a terrorist be given rights in our country. host: let's go to the democratic line. caller: i think they should be tried here. t
